"To me, teaching is a form of Art: it requires creativity and intelligence, craft and passion. Throughout my life, I have been fortunate to have some amazing teachers who inspired me to love learning and to become a teacher as a result.

I enjoy exploring new cultures and sharing my knowledge with others. Helping students learn a new language, overcome its challenges, integrate into the culture and work life, and achieve personal success in the process is incredibly rewarding to me.

My professional experience includes teaching English to international students in a variety of settings, in the United States and in Europe. My many years of experience have been with universities and business schools in New York, Boston, Prague, Rome and Toulouse. In addition to English, I have extensive knowledge of the language, culture and history of Russia and France.

I hold a B.A. in English and a Master's degree in Linguistics from Moscow State University. I also have an M.A. in French Medieval Literature from the University of Toulouse. I can teach: ESL/EFL, TOEFL, Cambridge First, French Pronunciation, Vocabulary, Grammar, and Conversation, Russian Language and Literature.

As a teacher of foreign languages, I approach each new student with the following questions:

* Why do you want to learn the language?

* Do you need it for work, travel or just for its beauty?

* Would you like to develop fluency, to master grammar or to be able to read your favorite authors?

This allows me to create an effective tutoring program tailored to my students' individual needs and goals. To help my students overcome language barriers while enjoying the lessons, I encourage them to actively participate in the learning process through a variety of fun and interactive activities such as role playing, vocabulary and grammar games, listening and reading comprehension exercises.

My hours are flexible (including weekends). I can meet you at a location that is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you!" less...
